“How do we avoid distractions and focus on work in this age of social media?"

All of us are hit with a large number of distractions every single day, every single hour of work. There are multiple information sources that compete for our attention, e.g. work email, personal email, phone calls, text, LinkedIn, Social Media, News, Professional and subject matter updates, Amazon shopping, Banking, wild goose chases on Google…

How do we keep our heads up in this deluge of information and keep on ticking, maintaining our focus? What are some of tips and techniques, and tools we can use in this area?

This will not be a conventional presentation; it is planned as an interactive session with ideas solicited from the audience. Together, we can come up with some practical suggestions we can implement in our lives that makes all our lives easier.

Objectives:

1. Tips on planning your day
2. Tips on focussing on work and avoiding distractions
3. Tips on managing email
